True perfection seems imperfect,
yet it is perfectly itself.
True fullness seems empty,
yet it is fully present.
True straightness seems crooked.
True wisdom seems foolish.
True art seems artless.
The Master allows things to happen.
She shapes events as they come.
She steps out of the way
and lets the Tao speak for itself.
Tao Te Ching v45
Christ Consciousness and Humanity
If you were to insist upon understanding all that is to come with your rational mind, you would be left sleeping far behind in the dust of history long after I pass. For I am a moving being, and my days on Earth are numbered. My true Kingdom is not of this world, but of a world that lies far beyond all the stars in your night sky. If you will come with me, on our way to eternity we will have plenty of time to visit these star systems together, and you will have a thousand years to enjoy the Earth in peace and harmony before we leave. Come, does this not sound like a good plan? Trust in me as you did once long ago. We are alone here in time and space. I am the only consciousness. Surely I am worthy of your trust. Let us be separate no longer, for I can read your heart and I see that you are homesick for a home you cannot remember. That home is my being. You cannot remember it because it is too vast and awesome to fit into any of your present structures of thought.

Field of Play
Gardening is the practice of growing and cultivating plants as part of horticulture. In gardens, ornamental plants are often grown for their flowers, foliage, or overall appearance; useful plants, such as root vegetables, leaf vegetables, fruits, and herbs, are grown for consumption, for use as dyes, or for medicinal or cosmetic use. Gardening is considered to be a relaxing activity for many people.
Gardening ranges in scale from fruit orchards, to long boulevard plantings with one or more different types of shrubs, trees, and herbaceous plants, to residential yards including lawns and foundation plantings, to plants in large or small containers grown inside or outside. Gardening may be very specialized, with only one type of plant grown, or involve a large number of different plants in mixed plantings. It involves an active participation in the growing of plants, and tends to be labor-intensive, which differentiates it from farming or forestry.
